Maple Baked Beans

Oh summer, you have almost passed! Sigh. I must hold on to some of the absolutely delectable recipes I made this summer and share them with you. Let’s begin with these super yummy baked beans! I have always been a baked bean fan. I don’t like an overwhelming tomato base, though, so this recipe really hits the spot! Slightly smoky, sweet, and creamy…these baked beans add the perfect accompaniment to any BBQ or gathering. I eat these as a base to my meal and add in veggies and fruit for a satisfying dinner. Easy peasy! Besides being delicious, beans are full of fiber, protein, and essential nutrients to keep you fueled and happy! Your gut will thank you for eating beans too! I will be making these baked beans now and into winter – I think you will too! Enjoy!
